MONSTER M4SK – boot display

by Ton_ada on Fri Aug 14, 2020 11:49 am

Hi
I have the MONSTER M4SK just as supplied
When it is switched on for a few seconds (on boot) it display logo “Digi-Key”
Is there a way to stop this either by changing what is displayed or just make blank ?
Thank you

When you connect the monster m4sk to a computer it should mount a drive named CIRCUITPY. The file was in the root of the drive. I do not remember the name of the file in the process of troubleshooting why I am not able to compile my over version of the M4Eyes code. The file is a normal image file. View it and you will see it looks like the digikey boot screen.

Good Luck!

In general, once you move on to programming the board with your own program, the logo should go away. What you are seeing is simply the shipped demo example code.

If you compile the code, in globals.h there is a bool variable --> showSplashScreen. Set that to false.
You can also do this in the setup function of the user*.cpp file that you use --> showSplashScreen = false;
